QGC control without radio

I am working on a ROV boat based on Navio2. While I am wating for a PPM encoder for my Turnigy 9X v2 I would like to try controlling it manually through QGC but can not find a virtual joystick/keyboard control? The ROV is link through a VLAN over LTE and seen by QGC. Has anyone tried using an on screen virtual joystick that bypass the radio calibration in QGC?

Virtual Joystick won’t work with ArduPilot firmware since it doesn’t support the mavlink mechanism that QGC uses for Joysticks.

So PX4 firmware is needed ?

For that specific feature, yes

is there any way to requiest this feature to be implemented in ArduPilot firmware ?
